This month’s sponsor: This episode of The Fanbase Weekly Podcast is sponsored by the comic book series, Boots and Pup. Have you ever wondered if there is life outside of this planet?  Well, I’ve got good news and bad news… there is life, but it’s pretty dumb. Boots and Pup is a webcomic about life on another planet… a planet populated by jerks. Two specifically: Boots, a high-strung worry-wort, and Pup, a care-free vagabond. Together, they engage in funny banter, odd-ball adventures, and reflect on pop culture, office jobs, and what it takes to get each other’s goat. Check them out at or follow them on social media (@bootsandpup) for new webcomics updated weekly. Your IQ will definitely suffer.
